Really anyone from high school will fit in just fine. Those who think they stood out more in high school may not stand out as much coming to UCCS but same goes for a more reserved high schooler. They may not be as reserved. UCCS has an array of people of all sorts that came here from high school. It is really nice because it is like you can start over with a fresh slate and get to know more people and work on a new image for yourself.

It's hard to generalize every student that attends the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. Each person is unique in their own way. From past experience I assume there are three different types of students that someone can classify themselves as. First, there are the brainy and determined students. These are the ones who like to be challenged often and tend to graduate with honors. Second, there are the students who care about school, but also have a social life. They get their homework done and eventually graduate. Finally, there are the students who love to party. They tend to neglect their studies and solely focus on partying. They either barely get by and graduate later than expected, or they drop out. UCCS does not have a policy on who can or cannot attend. UCCS accepts everyone and cares about a student's education and give students as many resources as possible to succeed.

People who want to attend UCCS should be curious, excited, and ready for a challenge. There are so many events both on and off campus. Being curious and excited to explore all these events would make you well suited to attend here. Many of the classes are also challenging, so a quality education is provided as well.

Anyone who loves the outdoors and all sorts of weather should come to UCCS. We like warm summers for hiking and snowy winters for skiing and snowboarding.

There is no one person. Most people who go to UCCS go because it is close to home or they have family nearby.

In high school, the people who attend UCCS now, would have been like me. Passionate, driven, fun-loving, quiet but ambitious and finished with all of the superficial judgement that comes along with high school. This school is meant for people who want and value a good education for a fair price, while still getting the full college experience of funny dorm stories and laughs with strangers. Everyday drama barely exists in UCCS unless its in the Drama department.

Most University of Colorado Colorado Springs students are local, being from California, I assume that they love the outdoors.

Someone who doesn't want a huge campus or any of the things that go along with it. There is no football team and the Greek life on campus is severely lacking.

I'm not 100% sure but I would say that anyone can attend UCCS, no matter being average or above student in high school. Anyone who wants to succeed in life and pursue their dream.

I personally came from a homeschooling background, and I scored very well on standardized tests.
Most of the students were from a more traditional student background. If you want to do well here, like anywhere else, you will need to be willing to work hard.
